Asia offers many fascinating cities for you to visit, one of which is Yangon. Yangon is the capital of Myanmar, which is famous for its friendly citizens. If you enjoy walking anywhere in Yangon, you will often be greeted by residents. In Yangon, motorbikes are not allowed. So the road is not as busy as other cities in Southeast Asia.
In Yangon, there are also many public transportation facilities that you can use—starting from the City Bus, Te mi (pickup truck with a tarpaulin roof), and taxis.
Aside from transportation, the thing you need to consider is the inn or the hotel you stay in. There aren’t too many hotels in Yangon, unlike other countries in Southeast Asia, this doesn’t make the 5 Star Hotel Yangon more expensive. The overnight price offered by hotels in Yangon is still relatively affordable. One of them is the Grand Mercure Golden Empire. This hotel, located on Hla Gyi Street, 14 Ward, South Okkalapa Township, has a wide selection of rooms, and is easy to access, and is close to tourist attractions in Yangon.
